A former CIA analyst told Pirro the scandal had damaged the agency’s future effectiveness in Washington.
judgejeaninepirro0413Pirro criticized Morrell for insisting that his editing of the Central Intelligence Agency’s report about the attack was “not political.” Removing the word “Islamic” in describing the attackers was an attempt to shield the Obama White House, Pirro countered.
It was also an attempt to protect the future political aspirations of then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the Fox News host said.
“Mr. CIA,” Pirro said, her voice dripping with distaste, “you didn’t just sell your agency to the politics of the Obama re-election campaign and the cover-up for the Hillary 2016 campaign, you sold your soul – and you perjured yourself for money.”
After her “Opening Statement,” Pirro interviewed former CIA senior analyst Fred Fleitz, who said the politicization of the Benghazi attack on Sept. 11, 2012, flew in the face of the agency’s role.
“Intelligence analysts are taught to inform policy, not to make it,” he said. “This undermines the reputation of the CIA as an honest broker in Washington. There’s going to be a long-lasting effect on the Hill — among members of Congress — when the CIA makes a call on an issue, based the ramifications of what Morrell said.”
There’s going to be a long-lasting effect among the American public, too – especially if a former secretary of state is at the top of the Democratic ticket in 2016.
